Haha yup I did the same. Scrolled up and down to watch my cpu usage graph go up and down, covered 1/2 the banner, etc. Add this banner to the benchmark suite Fixit!

We've asked G.Skill to look into optimizing the ad. Hopefully we will hear back soon.

Maybe if people had more Gskill ram in their systems the CPU wouldn't have to work so hard switching the data in and out of storage......

Adblockplus!!!!!!!!!!

And I already have GSkill RAM so I find it acceptable to block the ad

EDIT: I unblocked it and got 30% from my i7.... yikes!

G.Skill got back to me and they are already redesigning the ad. Should hopefully have the new one up soon.
